Never been to derby? You better strap yourself in. It’s going to get wild.
This is Roller Derby is a colourful and action packed documentary about all things derby; the sport, the culture and some seriously kickass women. From its roots in Austin, Texas, modern day Roller Derby has become the fastest growing women’s sport in the world.
Check out how the phenomena has taken hold here in Australia, with a group of very different women who band together to grow their own grassroots Roller Derby league in the rural town of Ballarat. Over twelve months, they strive to become a part of the greater Roller Derby community.
